Sing Sing Opens New Bar: Summer of ’09 Will Be All About ‘Summer of ’69’


Karaokeheads, you probably thought it couldnt get any better than the opening of Baby Grand, the Lilliputian bar where a husband-and-wife team lead the sing-alongs and occasionally buy everyone a round of Liquid Courage. But boy, do we have news: Ever-popular Sing Sing is aiming to open a West Village spinoff, called Karaoke Boho, sometime this summer. Itll be located at 181 West 4th Street, in the old Polly Esthers space, and Sing Sing manager Joel Lim tells us itll likely have a song list and setup similar to the originals, with a contest just like the one that occurs there on the second Tuesday of the month. Lim says, Were going to try to attract people who love the area, and well say this much given the blocks popularity with freaks, geeks, and trannies, Boho is going to give the madness at Lucky Chengs a run for its money. Just dont even think about singing Creed.
